WAV File Format

WAV files Format

WAV(Waveform) Audio File Format is a Microsoft and IBM audio file format standard for storing an audio bit stream on PCs. It is a standard digital audio file format used for storing waveform data; allows audio recordings to be saved with different sampling rates and bitrates; often saved in a 44.1 KHz, 16-bit, stereo format, which is the standard format used for CD audio.

WAV files are similar to .AIF files, but they are based on the Resource Interchange File Format (RIFF), rather than the Audio Interchange File Format (AIFF). WAV files are most often seen on Windows-based computers, while AIF files are more common on Macintosh systems. It is the main format used on Windows systems for raw and typically uncompressed audio. The usual bit stream encoding is the linear pulse-code modulation (LPCM) format. Audio converter and Audio Converter for Mac can help you convert WAV audio and video, dvd, audio to .wav files with ease.
